star this property answer text <p>Even one person without a roof over their head is too many. That’s why this Government is investing £550 million to 2020 to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping, as well as implementing the Homelessness Reduction Act, which will require councils to provide early support to people at risk of becoming homeless.</p><p>In some circumstances, the chance to reconnect with their family or friends in another area can help resolve a person's homelessness. But councils should be certain that they are offering someone real help that will resolve their homelessness.</p><p>The Department does not hold information on the number of homeless people offered reconnections. More people will be offered help under the homelessness legislation following the commencement of the Homelessness Reduction Act in April 2018. From this point our new data requirements will generate more detailed information about applicants who are referred from one local authority to another for help because of their local connections.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We recognise that demand for social care is growing and this was a consideration in last year's Spending Review.</p><p>The Spending Review settlement provides up to £3.5 billion of new support for adult social care by 2019/20 - greater than the £2.9 billion that the Local Government Association estimated was needed for adult social care in their Spending Review submission. The vast majority of councils have already taken advantage of the opportunity to introduce a new Social Care Precept, which allows them to increase council tax by 2% above the existing threshold. By the end of the Parliament, this will raise up to £2 billion that must be spent exclusively on adult social care. In addition, by 2019/20 an extra £1.5 billion per year will be available for inclusion in the Better Care Fund.</p><p>Taken together, the Social Care Precept and the Better Care Fund will mean local government has access to the funding needed to increase social care spending in real terms by the end of the Parliament.</p>

This includes an extra £1.5 billion through the improved Better Care Fund, which will continue to bring together funding and services across health and social care to support the provision of integrated care for older and vulnerable people. Councils will also have the additional freedom to introduce a social care precept onto council tax bills, which will raise up to £2 billion.
